  • Great looking castle and lovely location in the heart of historic town of Trencin. Staff offered us help but disappeared and we had to wait for a bit more. Will recommend though!

  • Today was our first venture out of Bratislava in over 2 months. We decided to visit the 3rd largest castle in Slovakia. The Trencin Castle is a large complex full of fortifications, with 5 gates...

  • Very big interesting castle but very boring tour, because inside there are only naked walls with some paintings on them. It is enough to visit the court and the tower.
  • The castles in Slovakia are stunning. These castles are compulsory viewing or should be wether your a history buff or just a man who still has that little boy inside him. Grab your sword and shield and go 😁
